Naah don't worry mate. It's a bloody good avatar. Meant to say that in my earlier reply. I was gonna make an animated gif so the tale moved but I don't think I'll bother after seeing yours. :D

Your Outrun one sounds pretty good too. Can't wait to see that.

Yeah as technology progresses so does the lines of distinction get ever more blurred. Mobiles are moving towards being mini computers. You can already get pocket pc's with built in camera and phone and that is how I see mobile phones in the future. They won't be phones anymore but a pocket pc with c...

Re:

Thunderforce IV, Mega Drive. Best of the series, and the best 'Drive shmup in my opinion. Fiercely difficult, but the option to choose which of the first four levels you started on was a real boon.

Re:

Arghh!! The name escapes me.... My Auntie used to have this electronic game where you controlled a caveman and had to steal eggs from a dinosaur from one side of the screen and get them to the other side.
